CareerBeam logo-link

Cover Letters are another important part of impressing an employer and creating your personal brand. The best way to entice an employer to read your resume is to write a cover letter that highlights specific reasons why you would be a good fit for the position and/or company.

As you draft your letters, keep the company and job description at the forefront of your mind. Make sure you emphasize examples of your experience in your cover letter which show the skills the company is looking for in their next hire.
